Re: 18th Century snuff box

Probably its the makers mark of Jean-Malquis Le Quin, got his master-craftsman diploma 08.01.1748. He was still working in 1777. Adress: Quai Pelletier, "Hotel Aux Anneaux d'Or".

Re: Opinions on spoon maker

thank you for the super pic, we have here an example of an older hallmark overstruck by a newer (Minerva) one, it shows right of Minervas' nose. Its probably part of the garantie de 1819-1838.

Re: Opinions on spoon maker

to be sure, you should provide us with a good pic of the minerva head, perhaps its the "vieillard", meanwhile I am sure about Labbé. Compared your worn mark with a clear mark. Beuque "poinçons" informs that this mark was used 1829-1839. Minerva was used from may 10th 1838 on. reg...

Re: Opinions on spoon maker

Just a guess, as the picture is not very clear and is not showing the details of wearing: Laurent Labbé, Paris, 61 rue Quincampoix, known as "orfevre-cuilleriste" (producer of spoons). His mark was already used 1829-1839. In the center it should be a hare.

Re: Silver gilt casket

Dear shneal, it helps. My conclusion, depending from the impression of your photo: The rim has been hallmarked before being soldered to the body of the casket, because you can see only half of the marks. For me the casket seems to be cast silver, is it very heavy? Can you provide us with a clear Pho...
